Obviously there's but one answer............. for me that is, Akira Kurosawa

Nothing is obvious but I'll make an exception here, of course it's Sensei Kurosawa.

@Jeorj, your choice is great since Takashi's in this list...
But I'm amazed how a list of any size, devoted to best Japanese directors, may not include Takeshi Kitano. Really.

@ilyas Kutlu
I suggest for inclusion:
Takeshi Kitano
Nagisa Ôshima

Akira Kurosawa obviously for me. You can consider adding Hideaki Anno who has been doing excellent works in Japanese animation and that carry out Neon Genesis Evangelion
